Bowie: Artwork for a work of art.

Bowie was a very inspirational figure for me. My adolescent love of art and music was made manifest in the figure of Ziggy Stardust. A visual artist who could sing rock ‘n’ roll. And could do both brilliantly. I created the above artwork for another online project but decided to post it here as my tribute to a man who was, even in death, a work of art. I built the image using the original photography of Brian Duffy (Aladdin Sane) and Johan Renck (Blackstar/Lazarus). I uploaded the shots to my iPhone 6 and, with the Photostudio and Picfx photo apps, I arrived at the artwork seen above. From station to station, from beginning to end, Bowie remained an iconoclastic artist. One can only aspire to be as inspirational.
